Ray Stevens Debuts New Music Video for ‘Nashville’
Ray Stevens may be from Georgia, but he wants everyone to know that he’s a Nashville man through and through. This week he released a new music video for his song ‘Nashville.’
“I wasn’t born in Nashville but it’s been my home ever since I came here in 1962,” Stevens says in a press release. “I wrote this song when I was halfway around the word and I can honestly say you never really appreciate home until you’re away. This one is for my ‘Home Sweet Home.'”
‘Nashville’ was penned while Stevens was feeling homesick on a three-week tour in Australia. The song was a Top 40 country hit in 1973, but Stevens has decided to re-release it along with the new video.
“I hope you all enjoy and I hope this little video will make you want to visit our fine city,” he says.
Stevens is typically known as a comedic country singer with hits like ‘The Streak,’ which poked fun at streakers in the 1970’s, but he also has a serious side. His Grammy-winning song ‘Everything Is Beautiful’ sold over 1 million copies.
The country artist also has a book, ‘Ray Stevens’ Nashville,’ set to hit shelves in 2014.
